unless you've had it over 24 hours it's really better to let it ride out. it's you body's way of getting rid of something bad. keep hydrated!

Loperamide is safe if you absolutely find you need it

Immodium AD is fine. No Pepto Bismol.

I agree. As uncomfortable as it is, it's the body's defense mechanism to literally flush the virus out of your system. If you stop that action, the virus will actually be able to hang in there longer. 

Quoting misasue:
